Little Three T&F Parents & Family Gathering

April 19th at Amherst

We are hoping to get as many parents, family, friends and alumni to help us break-in our new Track & Field Facility. Our first meet on the new track will be Little Three's on April 19th and in conjunction with the women's program, we are hoping to gather as many of you at Little Three's to continue the time honored tradition of gathering after the meet for some post-competition chow, lively conversation and opportunities to get see the athletes in action. There are approximately 35 on each of the teams and they are sure to be hungry and thirsty after a day of tough competition. What would potentially be needed - first and foremost, a raucous and rowdy crowd for the meet! After that, a lot of purple Amherst clothing and then grills, tables, and lot's of tailgate fare - burgers, dogs, chicken, sandwiches, salads, your kid's favorite food, perhaps your favorite food, something unique, something common, drinks, chips, paper ware and utensils - basically your call on what you would like to bring, as I am sure that it will get devoured and certainly will be greatly appreciated by everyone. This is a chance to see the team compete against Williams and Wesleyan, and for the parents of seniors - a final Little Three Championship opportunity :) Hopefully you will be able to make the trip to Amherst and get the chance to meet the other parents, the student-athletes that make up our awesome teams, a chance to meet / see again the coaches and the most important part, to get everyone together and have a great time and show your support of the team and the program. I will update this site with what people are bringing so that you will know who is bringing what or what might be needed. Perhaps seeing what others are bringing will help to put an idea into your head. We had a good time last year and we have had a lot of fun with the past gatherings during Track and XC and we are looking forward to building upon that success this year.

On behalf of the teams and both Cassie and I, we are really looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the 19th. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact either me Ned mail or 413 542 8117 or Cassie 413 542 5547 or email at Cassie

Ned & Cassie

Those coming and, if mentioned, what they are bringing - we will try and update this daily as we hear back from people and what they are bringing.

The meet starts at 12:00 and finishes up just after 4:00 (the schedule of events is posted below what people are bringing)


If anyone plans to, or can, bring a grill that would be awesome? Let Cassie or I know - we will have a BIG tent at the start of the sprint straightaway and if really bad weather, we will be able to use the Alumni Room in the Field House.
